Brys felt as if he d been punched in the stomach. Taking a harsh breath, he stared as if dumbstruck at the woman who sat on a low fur draped pallet in the middle of the room.
Touching the pendant, Brys hoped its magic would weave a spell to help him find the right words. She was so lovely that his heart somersaulted. The first meeting of their eyes hit him with the force of a skyrocket going off.
Hair the color of spun gold flowed to her shoulder blades in rich silky waves and threaded strands of ribbon contained the sides above her ears. Her simple white undertunic was covered by a green dress and girdled at the waist with a belt of hammered copper--the garment doing little to conceal perfectly rounded curves. The tunic didn't cover her shapely ankles.
She was gorgeous; breathtaking, and Brys knew her as well as he knew himself. He was face to face with his bewitching dream lover.
"This is Brys." Anstred broke the spell that seemed to have wound itself about him and the woman rose gracefully. Barely hesitating, she walked towards him, a slender hand outstretched.
